I lost my son Marshal (22) almost 4 years ago from S.U.D.E.P. I have petit mal seizures myself and had never heard of this until after my loss. It has taken a long time for me to even be able to write about this without becoming so emotional, I couldn't continue writing. Now, I am determined to do whatever I can to bring awareness to this condition. I created a S.U.D.E.P. ribbon (for anyone on facebook) in the ribbons application. I now live in fear everyday, that this may happen to me as well. I know the chances are slim but, it doesn't help. My prayers are with everyone who has lost a loved one to this but, we have to do much more than just pray. We MUST get the information out. Too many people are unaware. Drs. will tell you it is rare, we know differently. Drs. say they don't want to scare patients unnecessarily but, knowledge is power.
